When I saw that one of my favorite artists painted someone reading near a fountain, I had to purchase it. I have several paintings by Lindsay, but this has to be one of my favorites by her hand. I love all the details that are included, and the water looks so realistic. I have heard from artists that portraying water is not an easy feat. I would not know from personal experience, since my artwork is…UHH, How do I say? Oh right, horrible.
Look at the lilies in the water, and the fish holding up the bowls of water on the fountain. I am guessing the only way this would have been comfortable is a hot summer day, trying to beat the heat. Nevertheless, this painting is perfect in my dining room.
